This is the slide presentation for a public seminar conducted all over the U.S. that addresses getting results in the context of time and organizational skills and is now being compiled into a book to be released early summer 2011 - Getting Results - The 1% Way.
This is not a typical time management or how to get organized seminar. The content is created from the view of a performance management coach and carries with it particular insights not found in many other books or seminars around this topic.
Follow me on Twitter as I tweet a slide w/ audio with the bite-size learning approach in mind.
